“Play It Loud!”

My baby turns 18 this month…
boy, how the time flies!!!

Seeing as how he loves to play the guitar…
I wanted to make a card for him that suits his passion 
and this is what I have come up with.
Lots of layers of distress inks helps!
I have been learning how to create even more depth with layers through Marjie Kemper’s on-line classes, here…there is always something new to learn.

I have learnt…
to shut doors when it gets toooo loud…
to let him have his space…
to enjoy every minute of it…

Happy Birthday Scott!

sssh, this is him a couple of years ago playing on stage with a bass guitar at a school concert 
– only 2 days practice at using the bass and he says “how hard can it be…it only has 4 strings”


I would like to enter this into the following challenges ~
